10 tips for Canada Day Spectator Success

1. Be EARLY (parking lots are limited and fill up fast)
2. Park and WALK (you won’t be able to get a vehicle too close to 100 Street/Centennial Park)
3. Save your spot on the sidewalk (not the road – bring your lawn chair!)
4. Be aware of road closures (you will not be able to go your regular route) Our road closures will affect regular routes as early as 8:00am on Saturday. 
5. Be patient & polite (people running the barricades are VOLUNTEERS)
6. Obey ALL signs and orders from traffic control and barricade volunteers
7. Be sun smart and stay hydrated!
8. Supervise your children closely!
9. Stay informed! Follow the “City of Fort St. John Recreation” Facebook page for regular updates. 
10. HAVE FUN! It is a holiday after all!
